Although the last twenty years have brought increased awareness of the force and significance of posters, this book is the first to focus exclusively on those created in the United States. Featured here are 120 enticing posters created by some of the most popular American artists and graphic designers of the last hundred years - including Will Bradley, Ben Shahn, Robert Rauschenberg, Rupert Garcia, Georgia O'Keeffe, Wes Wilson, Norman Rockwell, Victor Moscoso, and the Guerrilla Girls - as well as splendid works by less familiar artists. The plate section is divided into five categories that address the social, commercial, political, and cultural roles of posters: American Events, Designed to Sell, Patriots and Protestors, Advice for Americans, and Sports. Persuasive images such as these continue to play an integral part in almost every aspect of American life. Biographical entries on the artists, a concise guide to postermaking terms, a bibliography, and both subject and chronological indexes serve to make this volume an invaluable reference tool.
